239 lbs
Is that live weight? or dressed weight? 3 years is way too long reguardless of the circumstances. 1 year is about right even for the bussisestof taxidermist. Is this a side hobby for him? BTW, very nice deer you took there.

I have never heard of a taxidermist taking 3 years to do a WT deer mount ... its a good thing you have pictures of him so you can remember what he looked like ... maybe after 3 years when you do FINALLY get him back he will have grown to a 14 point ... but it is a very nice buck ..looks a lot like a Canadian WT ...
